PRINCE GEORGE – Officials announce that the more than 100 people facing charges after a late-night game of Manhunt could be off the hook - if they meet a few conditions.
Police and the Commonwealth's Attorney say that hundreds of people who showed up to play Manhunt, a game similar to hide and seek at Temple Park on Aug. 5 were charged.
An invitation on social media to play the game spread like wildfire - and hundreds of teens and 20-somethings showed up.
Chief Ed Frankenstein says when police showed up, some ran away but they were able to get the names of others who stayed.
The Chief and the Commonwealth's Attorney announced Monday afternoon that the teens can avoid a criminal charge on their record if they agree to complete community service.
They will also not file any criminal charges against the people whose names they already have or any others who turn themselves in.
All they have to do is complete community service and sign a form acknowledging what happened.
